We have commissioned a unique 96SS 1:43 scale model (10cms in length) which comes in an easy to assemble kit form for the enthusiasts that prefer to build their own model.

The kit comprises some forty individual parts in addition to the decals and livery of Neo Brothers.

Body paint is not supplied so the modeller can paint the car in their preferred colour.

Please note that as with most kits some of the plastic parts may require trimming.

See the images below of the completed model to assist in the assembly process.

The kits can be found at the below link!
Saab Neo 96SS Limited Edition Model Car, Resin Kit 1:43

This is not a toy since the parts are very small and it is not appropriate for young children.

Have just laughed out-loud at seeing this! :lol: Absolutely love it!!!! 8)

Brilliant work! :D

A fantastic shot taken at the first unveiling of the Saab 96ss In Sweden, a photo that is too good to keep to ourselves!

Just logged on to see the progress and I we shocked not to see the project on the first page???. It wasn't till I searched for it that I fell off my chair to find that it has been finished, and at the international show. I was completely dumbfounded what a beautify finished work of art. Well done to all involved. That will teach me not following and missing the opportunity to see the car in the flesh gutted.

Spring is here at last!

We have taken the dust covers off the 96ss and dusted it down ready to start the final preparatory works so that we can at last put it on the track for its maiden test run. We will keep you updated. :twisted:

The car is amazing.

The transformer badge on the front is tacky.

There's a sensitive, sentimental story behind the badge. We'll leave it at that :)

After a sound check here at Neo Brothers HQ, it was clear that we'd have problem with the decibels :?

A new rear silencer was ordered today and winging its way to us :park:

We are pleased to confirm that the new addition to the Neo Brothers race pack, the 96ss took its first track ‘steps’ yesterday at the Bedford Autodrome under the watchful eye of its older protective brother the 93 hatch.

It is very quick especially at top end. The power output really comes into its own after 4000 rpm which meant that on the straight, it clocked up 130 mph at 6700 rpm (the 93 hatch could only achieve 115 mph). However, cars were noise restricted to 87.5db (drive by) which meant that we could not go anywhere its red line of 8500 rpm. In any event, the 96ss run out of straight track!

It performed exceptionally well. Except for some tweaking and slight modifications, the only negative was at the end of the day when Andy got bored with following the 93 hatch and pushed the 96ss towards 7000 rpm which meant it sailed past the 93 but was immediately rewarded with a black flag for breaking the sound limit. End of session for the 96ss but it was no walk of shame into the pits! Looking forward to its next outing at Cadwell at the SOC GB National.
A few pictures will be posted with a full report to follow.
